Romanee-Conti is one of the most famed vineyards in the world producing some of the most expensive wines in the world. In 2010 the proprietor Aubert de Villaine received a bizarre threat – he should either pay more than a million Euro in ransom or his ancient vines would be poisoned. Journalist and writer Maximillian Potter wrote about the plot for Vanity Fair magazine, and has just published his book Shadows In The Vineyard: The True Story Of The Plot To Poison The World's Greatest Wine.
